Effective teams QI

What makes a team effective? How do teams build and sustain a high level of performance?  These questions are at the core of an appreciative inquiry with a multi-professional perspective.

Engaging effective multi-professional teams

An appreciative inquiry into effective teams has been developed by a working group of multi-professional practitioners and patient voice representatives, under the leadership of co-chairs Wendy Bowles, NP and Dr. Bob Woollard. The inquiry engages high-functioning teams in BC, to reflect on how and why they work so well.

The pilot phase of the effective teams quality improvement (QI) project was conducted in partnership with the Rural Coordination Centre of BC and engaged three teams from diverse locations and practice settings. A summary report on the pilot phase project is available here.

The ultimate aim of the work is to support the spread of high-quality teams in BC, through an "infectious model of enthusiasm" and development of support tools for provincial teams.
